Poof! There were Roofers!

The guy was here doing some touch up painting today and there was a knock at the door. I assumed it was him. But, it wasn't. It was the long lost roofers.

So, now I had two ladders and four guys on the roof.

Did I mention that I had planned to take a nap this afternoon because I was up until 3 and got up at 6? Well, one can't nap when one's home is being pounded on from above. Obviously. So, at 10:51 p.m. I have still have not had any rest.

By mid afternoon I sent the paint guy home. There were too many people here.

The new dishwasher was being delivered between 4 and 5. At 4:45 I called about it. The guy was at Lowes, waiting on them to load it.

Susan and I had planned to have dinner. I called to cancel when I realized the dishwasher project was running long, but she didn't get the message. But, she was very kind and just hung out while they did the dishwasher.

That turned into quite the job. Getting the old one out was not a piece of cake, but proved easier than getting the new one in. I am happy to have a new, WHITE, one in the kitchen. I'm a believer in white appliances.

This morning I did a speech on workplace stress for the Head Start program. I think it went well.

I also printed a lot this afternoon, so that's good. I have stacks of things I want to complete this weekend, but I think for the moment, sleep is high on my agenda.

It's a work in progress - obviously! I'd love to have one of those great, colorful paint jobs, but at this point I am just focused on getting the basics done. :)
